After Flowers by Suzy Strout

Studying these gumnuts in a vase during self-isolation, gave me time to take note of the shapes and textures as the blossoms dropped away. I focused closely on this piece of nature whilst inside the house and chose to avoid some of the overload of frightening details appearing daily in the news. Although happy enough with my original interpretation, after sitting with it for a couple of weeks, I completely reworked this one day, by using a single large bristle brush to make myself manipulate the paint to get as much texture and strength as possible to convey a more optimistic outlook.
